New Found Glory/Four Year Strong/Set Your Goals/Crime In Stereo – Norwich UEA

Crime In Stereo

Crime In Stereo

Try as I might, i can’t, personally, find anything redeming about Crime In Stereo.

Four Year Strong

Four Year Strong

Four Year Strong are awkward to describe, they tend to go from full out screamo to pop three part melodies in the space of a 3 minute song. Synth player, and third vocalist, Josh Lyford seems to spend the whole set not being heard. From his vocals being low down in the mix, and his rare synth playing being barely auible at all, he jumps around and spends almost as much time in the crowd as he does playing on stage. Although this is entertaining to watch, it’s only during their last song (which reminds me of Houston Calls) that he seems to play a vaulable part in the bands overall sound. Apart from New Found Glory, Four Years Strong get the best crowd reception of the evening, with the pit loving them.

Set Your Goals

Set Your Goals

Set Your Goals are another band who can’t decide what they want to be, at times like Linkin Park, at others like Gallows. Joint vocalists Matt Wilson and Jordan Brown, which sounding adept individually, their styles and voices don’t blend well together.

New Found Glory

In March 2009 New Found Glory release a new album, Not Without A Fight, so you’d expect a bunch of new songs. However NFG refuse to play any new songs and instead treat the crowd to 75 minutes of classic NFG singles and album tracks with a few covers from their ‘From Your Screen To Your Stereo’ albums.

‘New Found Glory’ and ‘Catalyst’ seem to have the most songs played, whilst recent album ‘Coming Home’ is mostly shunned with only ‘Take My Hand’ and ‘It’s Not Your Fault’ aired tonight.

A supberb set, however, it would have been nice to hear afew new songs.
